hile the Halloween decorations have only just been packed away, our inboxes are already being flooded with holiday gift ideas. Of course, jewelry is always at the top of our wish list, but sometimes we have to concede that 1) we have very good taste in jewelry and that doesn’t usually come cheap and 2) it’s a little intimidating to purchase jewelry for people who live, breath and sleep jewelry! So, I was delighted to learn about a newly launched product that would give the would be gift-givers in my life an easy “out” while still giving me something sparkly. Even better yet, this new product isn’t just pretty, it’s also fun, interactive and can serve to promote mental health! And maybe, just maybe, the lessons I learned while watching The Secret back in the day will work their magic here…(hey, a girl can dream!).
With fun little “bite sized” blurbs about designers, genres, styles and themes, this book serves as both an inspiration for creativity and a creative outlet.
“Manifest Jewelry in 50 pages: a Zen Adult Coloring Book to Manifest Jewelry, and Help with Anxiety, Relaxation and Stress Relief,” was created by the talented Marie Fiorin of The Manifesting Journal and inspired by the stunning curation of pieces available at Jaimie Geller Jewelry. The exquisitely detailed sketches contained in its pages feature jewelry by designers such as Harwell Godfrey, Jacquie Aiche, Retrouvaí and Storrow, to name just a few of the featured designers from the perennial coveted set. The coloring book also features some really fabulous vintage and estate pieces from one of our favorite dealers at the U.S. Antique Show events, Laurie Geller of Geller & Co. With fun little “bite sized” blurbs about designers, genres, styles and themes, this book serves as both an inspiration for creativity and a creative outlet.
Through her drawings, Marie does what I wish more collectors would do IRL, which is gorgeously combine contemporary and vintage pieces. Available on Amazon for $30, Manifest Jewelry is a lot more price accessible than the jewelry it portrays, yet it would be a perfect companion for someone who actually owned any of the jewelry on its pages. Useful as a style-guide and as a stress reducer, Manifest Jewelry in 50 Pages is a non-intimidating gift to give any jewelry enthusiast. And while there’s no sense in messing with perfection, it could be fun, just as an experiment, to put our own color combinations on one of M. Spalten’s signature heart ID bracelets or invent our own color of enamel for a Bea Bongiasca ring.
